It's larger on the inside then it looks on the outside. there are several rooms lined with musical instruments from various cultures and eras. Our guide was pleasant and knowledgeable and let us hear several of the instruments and even play on a few.

A surprise in the center of town

we were in a tour led by Evyatar and it was a wonderful experience. He is fluent in English and has tremendous knowledge and skill in music. We had a very pleasurable 2 hours with him and recommend him as the tour guide.

Unique privately-owned museum dedicated to Hebrew Music

A friend suggested we visit this relatively-new museum in Jerusalem's Music Square (Kikar HaMusika), so we did so. The entrance desk was understaffed, and somebody in front of us was taking an inordinate amount of time--I never did figure out why. We left to check out another nearby museum, which we booked for a later time, and returned here--to discover that the same one staff person was still dealing with the same guest. I think both finally 'got the memo' that this just doesn't make sense, and we were finally admitted. They have guided tours for groups, which must be pre-booked, and self-guided tours using tablets. We did the latter. The museum has an incredible collection of musical instruments from virtually every corner of the Jewish diaspora. The tablet gives a blurb about each country or region, and sounds of each instrument on display. The highlight of the visit is a virtual-reality depiction of Jerusalem's Temples. Best to save this for the last. There is a bit of a logistical issue--guided tours and tablet tours tend to overlap and/or conflict. They know of the issue; haven't as yet found a solution. It's not a put-off--just something to be aware of. Recommended visit.
